My approach starts with a blank sheet of paper… It all starts with an “exploratory conversation” between us to do a “deep dive” and ultimately see whether “we are the right fit and we want to work together”.
We engage in conversation… we listen, we watch, we connect and we engage… conversation is at the core of every relationship… and I value my relationship with you.
I work with the end in mind… and we will clearly agree the “why” (the purpose) of what you are looking for. Agreeing goals and objectives will give us a “clear place to get to”.
Then, we co-create and we design… it is important to “win hearts and minds”. It’s not just an intelectual exercise. Every situation offers an opportunity to innovate, to refresh, to take a new look, to imagine a new way. So, I work with you to generate the way forward. We co-create our own work style and processes, and we agree milestones and metrics to measure our progress.
Then, we simplify, make it clear, accessible and doable…
Then… we “spice it up”… I make sure you and your teams will properly challenged and supported throughout the process… I will move you out of your comfort zone to try new things and to experiment… I will support you by helping you find new and different ways…
I will also introduce you to new and different perspectives… and will also provide you with a safety net.
Then… we make sure it will be fun… for you and your teams… and for me… not always, because shifting and changing are sometimes painful… but in the measure and to the degree that ensures that you will look forward to the process and be engaged with it.
Then… I look at myself and consider where I need to shift and adapt in order to be more effective and have a greater impact.
Then… we begin our journey and build our RoadMap…we engage in our formal process and informally in a variety of different ways that make the process real and useful… moving, shifting and adapting “in the moment” and as the situation requires.
And finally… we co-evaluate… and we continuously receive and give each other feedback about the process and the outcome.
